      desu, they always were.
      Clothing stores always relied on people just assuming "that's what that costs," when they go shopping there. You found the brick and mortar with the selection you thought was what you wanted, and then bought it for whatever it cost.
      Being able to see new clothes online, without having to wait for a catalogue really killed window shopping at malls, and then being able to reliably buy clothes online has really killed brick and mortar and big box.
      You can't get away with being a clothing store if you don't also offer services like alterations, bra fittings, makeup consults, etc.

          boomers maybe, but gen x absolutely not. it's just that gen x knows where online shopping is weak. it can replace buying certain things but for many others it has nothing on retail. what we also know is that retail has gone to absolute shit over the past five years - whomever is running operations at the stores is why they are failing, not competition with online. Shopping for things in stores used to be way, way better, in terms of selection, product, experience, all of it.

        It’s not less expensive anymore. You have to make an effort to get a good deal or a sale price online or off.

        boomer and gen x didn't shop online until corona hit

        Women have always shopped online, because they were used to the concept thanks to phone shopping via catalogs or later, HSN and the like. My gf was always so happy when her Anthropologie catalog showed up. Now they have brick and mortar stores but originally that wasn’t the case.

      When I am forced in to a restaurant by boomers or spend thrifts I become extremely agitated.

      You are paying a huge markup for food cooked in mass production in a kitchen that probably has vermin.

      Its a form of a decadence that only still appeals to the completely oblivious.

        i worked for a restaurant and it wasn't gross at all, definitely way cleaner than my own home.

        the markups are part of the business model you sperg, you pay a lot for the convenience of a great meal made for you instead of by you. plus no having to wash dishes and you get to sit in an air conditioned room with padded sears instead of baking yourself to death with the home oven in 90°F weather.

        the price is more than the food. also it keeps predominantly young people employed and not whoring on OF or doing gang shit.

      That didn't help but it really just accelerated it. Main streets and whatnot have been dying for 10+ years. Especially in cities but really even in my town there's only 2 bars, a meat shop, and a shoe store there and even our mall is almost half empty at this point.

      Only one of which I know for a fact got killed by the covid bullshit. It was actually big businesses that suffered more in that regard here.

      It's mostly due to pure greed all around. For smaller businesses, why pay exorbitant leasing prices when you can just operate out of your home or send all your shit to an Amazon warehouse and let them handle it? You aren't being incentivized to set up a business proper and the retards renting space aren't willing to compete. Especially not with tax laws and bank deals in some places making it better to sit on the property than rent it for proper market value.

      Then you have the big places like Walmart overpricing the hell out of shit, if they even bother getting it in stock at all. I've no reason to buy my YGO cards, for example, at 1.7x MSRP when I can get them for half that if I buy from somewhere else. I would rather buy everything in person but they don't want to compete so they don't want my money and I don't give it to them. Pretty simple.

      the much more tragic loss from the covid shit was small business tourism that was holding on since the mid-century.

      the shutdowns caused many of these things to be closed never to reopen. some really unique shit like pic related. ironically it was a man's vision of the perfect America in miniature that he started in the 1930s, and it meant a lot to thousands of people who's grandparents took their parents to as a kid and it was passed on to the owner's kids and grandkids over the decades.
      I guess they became brainwashed by the propaganda and decided to close it and sell everything off in an auction.
      It might seem dumb but it meant a lot to me and other people from pennsylvania who went there as a kid.
      And thanks to the globalists its now gone just like the vision of america it represented.

          Your country cares enough to rebuild their old cities like the ones that were destroyed in wwii and here there hasn't even been a nice one built in the entire history of its existence.
          Europeans care about and protect their heritage.
          Nobody in America gives a shit. Anything old is "creepy" and represents an "oppressive past".
          History is proactively forgotten and the value of vintage culture is relegated to how much you can sell relics for at an antique shop. Nobody wants to actually preserve history as a part of everyday life.

    Catabolic collapse: societies approaching resource and energy limits shed infrastructure until equilibrium is reached once more.
    It really describes everything. I'm surprised there isn't more violence tbh.

      Just another part of the thermodynamic system breaking down

      Think of the hundreds of billions being funneled into security agencies for the express purpose of oppressing the entire population for daring to want their politicians held accountable.

      Imagine if that wasn't necessary. Imagine if the politicians did what their constituents wanted. All the energy directed into enforcing a totalitarian state - what if it instead went into more productive things, like improving the quality of life of the populace? Why, you might have a growing and successful empire, instead of one that is quickly falling apart.

      sounds like an nrx take tbqh, "it's a bottom-up natural process not top-down kike subversion"
      pretty much what you would expect from keith triplevaxxer woods who would call you a schizo for budging ever so slightly from the cnn narrative on cov-id

        It's not a bottom up or top down anything

        The System is a thermodynamic machine and the operators are redirecting enormous energy into totalitarian thought control and policing. A system like this operates at a higher level of entropy; it requires a larger input of energy than a system which is the exact same otherwise but lacks the totalitarian oppression.

        Oppressive societies are thus always, in the long run, less competitive than a free and open society that doesn't require oppression to function. In terms of evolution, it's an 'organism' that is inefficient and unfit and easily out competed.

        As the west loses access to ubiquitous energy, and fails to develop new energy sources, it begins to undergo catabolic collapse

        Catabolic collapse: societies approaching resource and energy limits shed infrastructure until equilibrium is reached once more.
        It really describes everything. I'm surprised there isn't more violence tbh.

        And the very last thing to go, is the very thing that is actively hampering and destroying the entire thermodynamic machine - the oppressive totalitarian government. Things will not get better in the west until there is a total breakdown right to the civil war/revolution level. It doesn't matter what the people in charge think, it doesn't matter how hard the FBI murders revolutionaries or the government genocides millions; in fact that just accelerates it. The only way to reverse the course the US and the west in general are taking, is to stop oppressing the population.

        Which they are not going to do.

      This past few hundred years societies are created and destroyed by israelites. And it happens because we are inherently lazy.

      israeli bullshit. we're failing because of corruption and incompetence. there is alway an academic theory that attempts to blame failure on natural, cyclical causes in order to shield blame on the homosexuals who crashed the system through their own ineptitude. that includes a lot of the people, too. we get the society and culture we deserve.

    no it isnt, it's just the entire american economy is money laundering and money printing and expanding balance sheets, there are 500 thousand toys r us and kohls and pizza huts right next to each other. a 1% increase in costs means they have to shut down 400 pizza huts because they built 400 pizza huts and 100000 strip malls right next to each other. Oh no america is going to reduce the amount of cancerous strip malls and stupid retail stores no one likes ? D: local mom and pop will replace them with low costs and low prices after the crash everything will go back to 1950? oh no D:

      That's not even the money laundering part. Wasn't it weird how we operated on a zombie economy with different retail chains closing down each year despite record high stock market performance after 2008?

      you are an operative shilling, or a puppet of one.

      the canada flag blackpilling ITT is designed to make you believe their argument. the fags want everything online because they can track everything online. they can't track your behavior when you walk into a storefront and thumb through the racks. simple as.
